What advice would you give someone starting this project? You could use so many different kinds of materials for a buttonhole and even stick a little "theme" that is personal to the groom and his men. Build one out of a golf tee and feathers, make a loop of guitar stings and add a pick or tie in a fly fishing hook. These days it is all about being personal with your wedding details.

Yours is a wonderful variation of the traditional boutonniere. It's really very nicely done.
